Computer Science grads and PhDs cannot do basic loops and recursion? Yeah right.

Australia Declares Homeopathy Nonsense, Urges Doctors to Inform Patients

Pope Re:Not going to work... (408 comments)

The idea of treating the whole person instead of just the symptom is a growing concern in western medicine. This has always been the defining characteristic of homeopathy's holistic approach.

Eat well. Exercise. Don't smoke or drink to excess. Get plenty of sleep. That's "western" medicine's mantra. And is pretty fucking holistic.
You can't cure an ear infection by wishing it away.

Indie Game Jam Show Collapses Due To Interference From "Pepsi Consultant"

Pope Re:We are the geeks, we are not tools for non-geek (465 comments)

The main difference is the approach the producers take in the US vs. the UK shows. The US ones are all about highlighting him being confrontational.

One of the best shows of his I've seen was the kid version of MasterChef. His personality really shone through, by being very supportive of the kids while also focusing his critique on their dishes, rather than them. Well worth a watch IMO.
